Forming a society through violent revolutionary acts in which the economic organization would be controlled and owned by labour and the social unit would be the commune, linked in a loose federation. There would be no religion or state or authority.
The International Brotherhood was founded in Naples in 1868 by Bakunin. It opposed religion, the state and all authority except, in self-contradiction, the authority of the principle of anarchic brotherhood and communal controls. It gave rise to a popular anarchist movement in southern Italy.
Institutions like the state apparatus and ownership necessarily inhibit unrestricted individual freedom to produce creatively and relate with integrity to one's fellows. No amount of compromise or adaptation of these institutions can finally allow a spontaneous society. They must first be removed.
It takes considerable authority to raise a movement capable of destroying society's institutions in the name of no authority.
The Encyclopedia of World Problems and Human Potential is a unique, experimental research work of the Union of International Associations. It is currently published as a searchable online platform with profiles of world problems, action strategies, and human values that are interlinked in novel and innovative ways. These connections are based on a range of relationships such as broader and narrower scope, aggravation, relatedness and more. By concentrating on these links and relationships, the Encyclopedia is uniquely positioned to bring focus to the complex and expansive sphere of global issues and their interconnected nature.
The initial content for the Encyclopedia was seeded from UIA’s Yearbook of International Organizations. UIA’s decades of collected data on the enormous variety of association life provided a broad initial perspective on the myriad problems of humanity. Recognizing that international associations are generally confronting world problems and developing action strategies based on particular values, the initial content was based on the descriptions, aims, titles and profiles of international associations.
Non-profit, apolitical, independent, and non-governmental in nature, the UIA has been a pioneer in the research, monitoring and provision of information on international organizations, international associations and their global challenges since 1907.
